Cisma: Criolo “Duas de Cinco”

Cisma: Criolo “Duas de Cinco”

Continuing our exploration of work from around the globe, this latest one is from Brazil. It’s a short film by Denis Cisma and depicts a future set in São Paulo. This has a completely different flavour than our previous post from Korea. The film shows glimpses of holographic devices, drones, 3D printed weapons, projected keyboards [...]


2NE1 Come Back Home music video

2NE1 Come Back Home music video

I’ve been wanting to explore more work coming from different places around the globe. Fortunately, I recently stumbled on this Korean music video by K-POP band 2NE1, which features holographic interfaces and a see-through touch screen. The production quality of the clip itself is impressive and the execution of the UI effects is very tight. [...]

Multi Touch DJ Light Table by GERGWERK

Through the project he’s explored how to maintain [...]

Holographic UI - Swedish House Mafia & Absolute (Greyhound)

Here’s a commercial/music video featuring Swedish House Mafia for Absolute Vodka. The video shows the three DJs using holographic UIs to control robotic greyhounds in a race. It hints early on, at how the UI captures movements and how the greyhounds respond accordingly, but that’s as deep as it goes. This video is more about [...]


Instrument UX Reel

Instrument UX Reel

We don’t usually post showreels here, but here’s one that focuses purely on UX projects! It’s from Instrument, the guys behind the Nike IdNation spot. I’m excited to know that there are studios out there who have enough work and put enough emphasis in UX design to warrant a reel dedicated to it! On top [...]


Dr. Dre “HP Envy Commercial”

Dr. Dre “HP Envy Commercial”

Dr Dre works his magic on a touch screen mixer in this futuristic spot for HP. Love the colours used in the dials and the soft glows, in the very clean graphic interface. It’ll be interesting to see more music GUIs as technology develops. “Token” is one example of this, a multitouch live performance tool [...]
